  1. This is what I use: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Plastic-Diamond-Pattern-Treadplate-2-pack-by-Don-Mills-Models/311973902045?hash=item48a317f6dd:g:q9gAAMXQfvlSm6XU
  2. They seem to love it! https://myairbrushcompressors.com/review-master-tc-20t/
  3. Not too bad, except for the fingers.
  4. THIS IS NOT RIVET COUNTING! I'm just making some observations for those who may want to know. I'm thrilled to have the kit, and I already have two. I'm not going to pick on proportions, only black-and-white things. Here we go: The grille outside the headlights should have as many bars as the grille. I think the arrangement on the kit is SS only. I don't think a 4 door would have the rear seat speaker. That was a 2 door only thing. The front bumper guards are molded into the front end, so they go all the way to the grille- there is no space between front bumper guard and grille (the rears are separate). The Chevrolet script in the grille is too high, probably to clear the bumper guard. In real life, part of the script would be behind the bumper guard. That's it from a casual glance. I am glad they did the kit. Really looks cool.
  5. I'd love to build a stock Swinger some day. When the time comes, mind if I pick your brain?
  6. This board seems populated with encouraging builders. Thanks for your comments...it's a good for the motivation. That being said, if something looks like BLAH_BLAH_BLAH_BLAH, tell me so I can fix it.
  7. Multiply measurement by 25 to restore it to 1:1 measurement, then divide by 87.
  8. Mastering a '69 2 door has been on my to-do list, but it's about 30 projects from the top of the list.
  9. Progress continues. The weathering effect looks strange in these pictures, I'm not sure why. I'm wondering now if I should stay with the flatbed or make this a box truck. What do you think?
  10. I need to get back on this, but stalled out making the windshield buck for vacuforming.
  11. I've been working on other projects along with this one, but I've gotten a little further, and established the "look" of the Dodge.
  12. I've gotten some things done on the chassis. I made the side rails, so there was no detail to start with, thus the added plumbing and bolts.
